Tropical Storm Danny Moving Northwest
As of 5 a.m. EDT (0900 UTC) August 27, Tropical Storm Danny is located within 60 nautical miles of 27.4°N 72.1°W, about 370 mi (590 km) east-northeast of Nassau, Bahamas and about 575 mi (925 km) south-southeast of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, USA.
Maximum sustained winds are 50 knots (60 mph, 95 km/h), with stronger gusts. Tropical storm force winds extend outward up to 205 miles (335 km) from the center of Danny, which has reformed a little farther to the north. Minimum central pressure is 1006 mbar (hPa; 29.71 InHg).
The system is moving northwest at 9 kt (10 mph, 17 km/h). This general motion is expected to continue today, with a turn toward the north and an increase in forward speed expected on Friday.
Early charts are showing a very close to land path, which would mean onshore winds and not much leftover swell behind the storm. This expected track will require a vigil along the US eastern seaboard this weekend, as Danny could slowly get stronger as it moves toward land.
